The Health Effects of Soda
Oh, it's bad

tooth enamel



Real bad.
By, John Schaefer
What is that?
Metabolic Syndrome
"The collection of risk factors for cardiovascular disease and diabetes that include abdominal obesity, high cholesterol and blood glucose levels, and elevated blood pressure.”
That was a lot of big words
Leads to problems such as heart disease and diabetes
High cholesterol
High blood sugar
High blood pressure
"abdominal obesity"
(belly fat)
You would have to walk from here to the arch to burn off the calories from a 20oz. soda
Fine, I'll drink diet soda
“Drinking diet soda has been associated with weight gain. Because the soda contains no calories and no sugar, the weight gain doesn't come from calories [but from rationalization]."
People allow themselves more sweets because they think they’re saving calories so they can use those calories elsewhere

cannot repair chipped or cracked enamel. It is damaged forever.
The relationship between soft drink consumption and body weight is so that for each additional sodas consumed, the risk of obesity increases 1.6 times.
70% of Cardiovascular disease is related to obesity.
42% of breast and colon cancer is diagnosed in obese individuals.
30% of gall bladder surgery is related to obesity.
Phosphoric acid is a b****.
Added for sharper flavor
Slow growth of bacteria
"This has nothing to do with sugar content in drinks, so both diet and regular sodas cause the same problem.”
What is enamel again?
Then how is it damaged?

How are my bones affected by soda?
Phosphoric acid
Your bones then give up some of their calcium
Those who drink soda at meals drink less OJ or milk
Can lead to osteoporosis
Then what can you do?
Water: Add slices of lemons, limes, oranges, watermelon, cucumber or mint for a refreshing drink.
Unsweetened Teas: If you want a little sweetening, just add a few drops of honey.
Coffee: Just stay away from the fancy sweetened ones.
Low Fat (1%) or Fat-Free (skim) milk: Always a good, healthy choice.
Soda is great tasting, but it kills you.
Thank you.
